Here in Food Network Kitchens, we love simple, classic recipes. We are also paid to think about food all day. So we’ve taken classic foods and drinks and reimagined them into three, four or five different ways. No standard recipes here, just the occasional technique and pictures. Think of it as a picture recipe.

Orzo is pretty delicious with just some butter and salt. But why not try one of these summertime-inspired orzo salads? The options are endless. Plus, you can serve them warm, room temperature or slightly chilled.
